In this Ebook You Will Discover...

  • Your Values and Needs

    Activities focused on helping you define your values and discover what your needs are.

  • Unhelpful Beliefs

    Activities defining success and examining blueprints that might be holding you back.

  • Your purpose, cause and belief

    Crafting your Why statements so you can start working out what you will do to achieve fulfilment.

Like you, I was living a life where I didn't know what I wanted or what my purpose was in this world. I lived with an emptiness, a lack of fulfilment that I had never been able to resolve. I'd read books and articles about discovering my passion, but they were always too impractical and I was left not knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up.

When I was 39, I started My Year of TED, a year-long self development project I created using the wisdom of TED Talks to change my life. Understanding my Why, or my purpose, was one of twenty-one 30 day activities that I completed in that year. The activity that allowed me to finally discover these things for myself, to finally define my purpose, cause and belief, was 30 day of Drive.

Based on TED Talks, and other content, from Simon Sinek and Tony Robbins, I created my own process for defining my Why - for working out what I want from the world and what I want to give the world. Living with Intent captures the 10 step process I created for myself - the practical and relatively simple process that has changed my life and allowed me to feel whole and fulfilled, for the first time.

I want to share this process with you, I want to help you discover your purpose in the world so you can know how wonderful it is to understand what you're here for. Through the process in Living with Intent you can develop a better understanding of who you truly are (your authentic self), and how to align your life with that real you to improve your fulfilment. Once you know what your Why is, and the What and How around achieving it, you can start to live a more intentional life, where all of your decisions are focused on reaching a known goal.

There were 10 steps involved in the process of trying to discover my purpose, some were more involved than others. These are the steps that I will guide you through in Living with Intent:

  1. Watching the TED Talks
  2. Reviewing Simon’s website content
  3. Tony’s personal strength reports
  4. Simon’s book and Tony’s introductory audio
  5. Answering Tony’s prompts
  6. Answering Simon’s prompts
  7. Finding your values
  8. Careers I’ve considered
  9. Drafting your purpose, belief and cause
  10. Following your purpose
  11. I've also included a bonus step - developing success statements - which came from 30 days of Choice, but aligns very well with the 30 days of Drive process.

Don't wait any longer to live a happier and more fulfilled life

This book is a cool spin on the currently popular theme of doing something for a year and writing a book that shares what you learned -- what Kylie does uniquely is hand the "program" over to the reader and help us follow the same journey -- I love it! I discovered Kylie's 'My Year of TED' blog near the end of her project, and fell in love with her writing, story, and creativity. I was so excited to see that she's created this guide to one of her Year of TED activities! I (and probably many others after reading the blog) was inspired to make changes of my own, and Kylie's guide is a perfect place to start. She does a wonderful job of combining personal reflections with the key points from the TED experts with actionable tips that can help the reader make actual progress on these topics. The interior design and whimsical illustrations top off the guide and make it a delight to read 🙂

Living with Intent was a thought-provoking process that has allowed me to finally point myself in the right direction. The activities gave me some great insights into myself, including helping me fish out some things I already knew about myself but moved to the back of my mind. The workbook and surveys were good tools to bring them to the surface, and gave me a lot of information that I didn't know what to do with at the beginning. But it all started to come together in the latter part of the program where I looked at what parts of my roles I liked/disliked and how they matched up with the roles that I dreamed of as a child - and of course drawing lines from them to my values. Actually coming up with my values list was invaluable. It was difficult to prioritise, but when I got the list right it just felt right. Probably the hardest section was the last part, putting together the 3 statements. They all seem quite similar, just worded in different ways but again, once that came together it became clear (well with a bit more thinking) which avenues I should look towards. After years of not understanding where I needed to be going I finally feel like I'm heading in the right direction. Thank you Kylie

...a very simple, yet powerful process that helps you discover the 'authentic you.' The book very simply outlines 10 steps that the reader can immediately implement. There is even a workbook included that further simplifies these steps. I discovered many new things about myself and have worked through several 'self-sabotaging' bad habits. The whole purpose is to come to understand WHY we do or do not do certain things. Once you start understanding this, it enables you to 'develop your How and your What.' Dunn makes this process painless, and even fun. I enjoyed Living with Intent and will continue to refer to it often. It is a treasure I'll use time and again.
